Gerontology education in transition: considering disciplinary and paradigmatic evolution

Authors:
BASS Scott A., FERRARO Kenneth
Journal article citation:
Gerontologist, 40(1), February 2000, pp.97-106.
Publisher:
Gerontological Society of America

The disciplinary status of gerontology has long been the subject of much debate, but recent changes in higher education suggest the early development of a more integrated, interdisciplinary approach to gerontological education and research. The authors argues that gerontology is currently a multi-disciplinary field of inquiry, but at selected schools it is moving toward an interdisciplinary field and may ultimately evolve into a new discipline. The risks and benefits attendant with this disciplinary evolution are reviewed in light of the historical development of other disciplines.

The first national study of elder abuse and neglect: contrast with results from other studies

Author:
THOMAS Cynthia
Journal article citation:
Journal of Elder Abuse and Neglect, 12(1), 2000, pp.1-14.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis
Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

The National Elder Abuse Incidence Study (NEAIS) conducted in 1994-1999 in the U.S.A. was designed to obtain national estimates of both reported and unreported cases of elder abuse and neglect for 1996. This article contrasts the methods and results of this study with several previous studies to assess the reasons for differences in estimates. These differences include whether the study was designed to measure prevalence or incidence, the inclusiveness of the definitions, eligible age range, and methods of data collection. Concludes that future studies should combine incidence and prevalence and ranges and definitional subsets to meet different public policy requirements.

Editors:
ALDRIDGE David, (ed.)
Publisher:
Jessica Kingsley
Publication year:
2000
Pagination:
256p., bibliog.
Place of publication:
London

The editor brings together the diverse research and personal experience of contributors from around the world to examine music therapy as a means of improving memory, health and identity in those suffering from dementia, particularly the Alzheimer's disease. It explores the issues which may arise in working with this group, such as coping with wartime memories, and shows how music therapy facilitates and enables communication through sound and movement. The book is expected to be of interest to caregivers and families of dementia sufferers and to become an essential resource for music therapists and professionals caring for dementia sufferers. Topics covered include: an overview of music therapy literature relating to elderly people; working with words, the significance of narratives; the importance of singing with elderly patients; the problem of agitation and potential benefits from music therapy; experience from the Netherlands; improvisation as an assessment of early Alzheimer’s disease; creative music therapy; remembering and forgiving; working with images and recollection; and dance movement therapy.
